Celtic have been superb over the past 18 months, going 63 games unbeaten.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers addressed the media in the immediate aftermath of his side's impressive 4-0 away win at St Johnstone yesterday, and shared what he told his players in the dressing room following the match, as quoted by the Scotsman.
Celtic have been mightily impressive over the past 18 months, going 63 games unbeaten in domestic competition, and they currently sit comfortably at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, three points clear of second placed Aberdeen.
The only real criticism of the Glasgow giants can be their poor European form, but that really is nitpicking, considering the inferior budget that they are operating on, in comparison with some of the continent's elite clubs.
Rodgers spoke to the media following his side's victory yesterday, and opened up on the message that he gave his players in the immediate aftermath of the game at McDiarmid Park, as quoted by the Scotsman:
"On behalf of everyone at the club and as the manager, I just said ‘Thank you’. For everyone involved, Celtic supporters and all the staff, it was a really special day. We have broken a century-old British record that was already held by Celtic – and that is no mean feat in modern sport and football especially."
Stiffer challenges certainly await Brendan Rodgers' side, but they have proven over the past year and a half that they have all of the necessary attributes, both physically and mentally, to cope with whatever they face.
